    An AGC supported provision within the Bipartisan Budget Act repeals the mandatory auto enrollment of employees in employer provided health care coverage. The provision originated in the ACA and forced employers with more than 200 full time employees to automatically enroll a new full time employee in a health plan within 90 days if he or she fails to choose or decline coverage. Employers would have also been required to continue to enroll current employees in a health plan. The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 was passed by the House 10/28/15. The Senate is expected to pass the measure.
